Halloween Activities Planned At White Haven Area Library

The  White  Haven  Area  Community  Library  has  planned  several  events  for

 children,  students,  and  adults  to  celebrate  Halloween.   

There  will  be  a  Halloween  Party  for

 school-age  children  at  St.  Paul’s  Parish  House  on  Berwick  Street  on  Saturday,  October  26,  from  6:00-7:30.   Children  from  kindergarten  and

 up  are  invited  to  come  in  costume  for  treats,  games,  and  crafts.   A  party  for

 preschool  children  will  be  held  during  Tots’  Story  Time  on  October  31  at  9:30.  Registration  is  required  for  both  events.  Call  570-443-8776  and

 leave  a  message  or  stop  by  the  Engine  House  at  99  Towanda  Street  on  Tuesdays,  Thursdays  or  Saturdays.

On  October  29,  Carissa  Longo,  naturalist,  will  present  ”Batty  about  Bats,”  a  program  suitable  for  all  ages  at

 6:30  in  the  Engine  House.   She  will  dispel  some  myths  and  fears  that  have  developed  about  bats  over  time  and  help  us  learn  to  appreciate  the

 special  qualities  and  abilities  of  these  furry  little  creatures.   This  fun  session  is  free  and  open  to  the  public.

On  October  30,  The  White  Haven  Paranormal  Society  invites  participation  as  it  conducts  an  “ Investigation”  of  the  Engine  House  at  7pm  to  search  for  evidence  of  people  and  events  associated  with  this  historical  building  through  its  many  years  before  becoming  the  library.   The  program  is  suitable  for  adults  and  students  over  the  age  of  14.   There  will  be  a  $5  entrance  fee  that  the  Society  will  contribute  to  the  library.

On  Halloween,  October  31,  the  library  will  welcome  trick  or  treaters  from  6:00-8:00.

Everyone  is  invited  to  stop  at  the  library  to  check  out  the  collection  of  Halloween-themed  books  for  children  and  adults  on  sale  near  the  circulation  desk.
